I have been visiting the South Lakeland market town of Ulverston for about 45 years. I spent part of every Summer holiday here in the late ’70s and early ’80s.
There are very few High Street chains. Many shops are closed Sunday and Monday. People know each other and look out for one another.
You can be looking down on Lake Windermere within half an hour. You can walk to Morecombe Bay in around 40 minutes from the town centre.
There’s something about Ulverston that feels like home. I swear I can feel my heart squeeze ever so slightly as Hoad comes into view.
